Asteroid 4 Vesta

Monster asteroid Vesta now close enough to see from Earth!

Despite being visible, the track it follows is never likely to cross that of our own planet.
But the ominous yellow-glowing orb can be seen passing through our skies both because of its size and the stuff it is made of.

I should have added Vesta will only be visible for a couple of weeks until July 17 until it leaves our skies.
